Three immigrant boats found abandoned in 24 hours in Moraira


A BOAT was found abandoned on Moraira’s l’Ampolla beach on Monday morning and three immigrants of Arab origin were later arrested.

The immigrants will be passed to the National Police who will organise their repatriation.

The day before, an almost identical boat was found abandoned in Calpe’s cala Calagla and 12 immigrants were rescued off the coast of Santa Pola.

Similar events occurred last year in Benitachell and Javea.
